> There is another consideration, Snails are bisexual! They breed all

by them selves. If you miss just one They are back! If we are going to go

to all the trouble to relocate snails, then we must find the correct habitat

for the little #*!@#$* darlings. An enemies back garden perhaps? Opps, I

didn't really mean that but it is nice to contemplate! I love the Idea of

the grave yard to deposit them. I guess I am just not devotee material yet

..... I kinda like the Idea of the beer, at least they don't care that they

are drowning. The diatomaceous earth is painful to a body like theirs. If I

had the time To pick the little darlings off the plants and under the

thousand boards I would have to put out, well it wouldn't be worth the

effort. Bring on the ducks! Box turtles, peacocks, geese and stomping boots!

On the other hand of you have the really big snails they could become a cash

crop, Thirty years ago I used to collect them in California and sell them to

restaurants for . 50 each they intern turned the snails into Escargot with

garlic and butter sauce. But Alas, I am now a vegetarian and do not exploit

critters to feed humans (bees Excluded). Thank GOD I do not live that life

any more! And in the desert my snail problem is almost non existent!

What ever the answer is It will involve much time and effort and I do

not have much of those valuable commodities. If we ever get it resolved I am

all ears!
